UMSHWATHI Library Services has embarked on a careers outreach program, starting with a day in Coastal TVET College Hall in Appelsbosch.

This was part of a community service project aimed to empower and educate pupils through information.

The reason behind the uMshwathi Library Services career outreach project is to provide pupils access to all the information that they need to make informed decisions about their choice of career.

“Our aim is to influence the academic achievements of individuals and assist them in lifelong learning, preparing them for productive employment and successful futures,” said Barbara Fey, uMshwathi librarian.

Various institutions were invited to provide pupils with all the necessary information to assist them in making informed choices as to their future careers.

This event was hosted to enable grade 12 pupils to find out what the various institutions have on offer and what is available to them.

Schools attending included Nondenisa Secondary School, Sikhulile Secondary School, Mjele Secondary School and Mthuli Secondary School.

There was a good turnout of 460 pupils from the various schools.

Providing much appreciated information were the Department of Arts and Culture, Library Services, Varsity College, UKZN, Richfield Graduate Institute of Technology, Coastal TVET College, Midlands Community College, Damelin, Rosebank College, Creative Arts Academy and Oval International Education.

Mr E.T. Khuzwayo, a local author, came to do a presentation to inspire and delight pupils to achieve their best. He also did a book review of his novel Nguye Lomama.
